Ski-touring advance course

Backcountry ski-touring allows us to move around the mountains in its most solitary and perhaps most fascinating guise: winter. Far from the crowds and noise, immersed in the whiteness of an immaculate nature, we earn, metre after metre, the fun of the descent that awaits us.

This course, This course, designed in continuity with the basic course, aims to teach you the secrets of ski-touring in the field: the aim is to make you independent in the practice of this wonderful discipline. This is an opportunity to learn how to move around safely on skis and have fun together with other people who, like you, want to start a new, exciting adventure!
